n both cases – the passage from Revelation and the one from Mark, Jesus notes that the people of the house (of Israel) do not know when the master will return and because of that, they should stay awake and prepared. There are many today – mostly in the Preterists and Reformed/Covenant camps who believe that Jesus already returned spiritually in AD 70 when God judged the nation of Israel by causing Roman armies to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. The problem with this interpretation is that it is simply not Scriptural. Jesus said when He returns, every eye would see Him (Matthew 24), and in Acts 1, the disciples are told (after Jesus is taken up to the clouds physically) that this Jesus would return the very same way, meaning in the clouds and physically.
Notice though that the faces of these locusts had faces like men’s faces and hair like women’s hair. Their teeth did not remind John of human teeth but of teeth in a lion’s mouth. They wore breastplates of iron and they had wings, which all told made tremendous noise when they flew. Finally, these creatures had something in their tails (like scorpions) that allowed them to hurt men for five months.
America is a country that is being profoundly attacked from within. The fact that there is a very good possibility that a statue of Baphomet is being constructed and may very well be placed in front of the Oklahoma State House is not only perplexing, but grieving. There is no excuse for it and the only reason that can be offered is that America has sunk to this point through a constant posture of pushing God away.
All of these “messiahs” have one thing in common, besides the fact that they are living lies. They trap people through emotional bondage. Emotions can be extremely powerful and if allowed, will carry us away to destruction all based on “if it feels good, how can it be wrong?” Feelings should never, ever be the engine that drives the train or vehicle. Critical thinking, knowing Scriptures and by them, knowing God is what is to guide us in this live.
In much the same way Vladimir Lenin was able to label those opposing communism as being mentally ill, so will it be in America if we don’t snap out of it with respect to the constant barrage of propaganda being fed to us by those seeking a communist United States. To give you further understanding of this concept I will be referring throughout this article, to a book entitled “Brain-washing – A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics.”
Antichrist makes the covenant because of his ulterior motives. Halfway through the Tribulation period, he will completely defile the Jewish Temple (as Antiochus did in 168 BC; cf. Matthew 24), making it completely unsuitable for worship (as was the case following Antiochus’ defilement). Antichrist will do what Paul tells his Thessalonian readers (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4), “the man of lawlessness…who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”
If the brokering of a covenant between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations is the event that starts the Tribulation, we need to discuss what happens during the Tribulation and fortunately for us, the Bible has it outlined for us neatly. Though we cannot determine exactly how much time transpires between each seal, trumpet, and bowl during the Tribulation, we can generally determine the order of events.
